Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Its hard to believe another year is almost at a close!  I apologize for not keeping up with this blog like I had intended.  Sometimes life gets in the way of our best plans! It is my goal for 2019 to be more active here.  I am closing my Etsy shop the end of this year & want to convert my listings over to this site & keep it updated as to what I have available for sale at any given time.  Hopefully I can get everything set up & ready to go for the changeover.  I hope you & your family have a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Keep crafting on!!  Hugs!  Donna20151213_203807000_iOS

Guest Design Team Project

Hi friends!  I wanted to share with you these cards I have made using Hunkydory toppers that I have purchased from ASCSupplies on Etsy.  I am a beginning cardmaker & these make the process so easy!  I love them!  Pictured are cards made from Twilight Kingdom & from the new collection Amethyst Dreams.  There are so many different varieties to choose from & I highly recommend them!  Check out Crystal’s shop…

Friday Features

Good evening everyone!  I am so excited that I will be a guest designer for Crystal at!!  ASCsupplies has quickly become my favorite go to shop for paper & crafting supplies.  She has a wonderful selection of name brand collections…as well as my favorite Lavinia stamps! Please visit her shop & see for yourself what a great shop it is!  My first project will be using the Butterfly Dreams Collection from Heartfelt Creations & using elements from other brands she carries.  I can’t wait to get started!  Stay tuned for the project reveal & video.

Also wanted to let everyone know that everything in my shop now is 40% off.  I hope to close the shop by the end of May, so I can focus on more design work & other creations. Click the link in the heading to go to my shop!

Hope every one has a great evening & weekend!


Orders are out!

Well I did it!  As of this morning I have shipped all orders from last week.  All 120 of them!!  Most of which came in, in two days! This old lady is tired! So now I will straighten up this mess of a craft room & do a quick inventory to see how much of some stuff I have left & relist some things.  If you placed an order last week thank you so much & thank you for being so patient in waiting for your order!  Hugs to all!!

Help…I’m drowning…

In a sea of orders!  lol  The response to my announcement on Sunday of closing my supplies Etsy shop soon & having a clearance sale was met with a resounding positive response!  I received 77 orders on Sunday alone!  On Monday over 30!  I had to charge my phone twice due to it going off with all the Etsy alerts!  I am beyond grateful for everyone’s orders…& they are still coming in…just not in the volume they were!  So thank you thank you! Please know that I am working as fast as I can to get the orders out.  I’m a one woman show here & an old one at that!  lol  I am filling them in the order they came in, so please bear with me! I still have like 42 to go, including the ones that came in today.  So thanks again! I’ll try & update here when I can.  When I get caught up I will do a re-inventory & repost anything that may show out of stock right now & let everyone know.

A new page is turning…

After much soul searching I have decided to close my Prairie Rose Laces Etsty shop.  It wasn’t an easy decision, but its time to get back to my first passion & that’s creating.  Whether its Junk Journals, handmade books, altered books, mixed media etc…its time to get back to what makes me the happiest!  I have loved being a supplier & I have some awesome customers, but this is something I have to do.  I do have an Etsy shop called Junk Chic Journals…the link is on this site.  It’s were I will sell my creations & whatever else I may come up with!  So please follow me here & stay tuned for some great new things, including some YT videos!

Starting immediately all items in my shop are 30% off.  I want to close the shop in June if not sooner, but it will take a little time to sell off the inventory.  Take advantage now while choices are available. Some items quantities are very limited. I want to seriously thank everyone who has supported my shop!  It has been much appreciated!

A Milestone for Prairie Rose Laces

I have achieved another milestone tonight with breaking 2500 sales in my Etsy shop.  I am so humbled & grateful to everyone that has shopped with me!  I appreciate it more than words could say.  And to think I have in some small way, helped you in your creations!  Thank you so much!  3000 here we come!

I am also proud to say that Prairie Rose Laces ranks in the top 2000 Etsy shops!  I know that doesn’t sound all that impressive…but there are 1.9 million Etsy shops1  And all this has happened in less than a year!  So thank you to everyone that has ever placed an order & to every one that has supported me in my endeavor to carve a little corner in the paper crafting world!
